Hm do you have the full WARNING for this? Maybe this gives me an idea
what's going wrong.

atomic_begin/atomic_flush are symmetric functions an always called
around all the plane updates. So having the spin_lock in _begin and
the spin_unlock in _flush should be symmetric and correct.

If you want to make sure, recompile with CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING, which
should immmediately give you a huge splat in dmesg if there's anything
unbalanced with locking.

Have fun chasing stuff :-)
